Extension safe products should always and only be used. Do not make, sell or recommend your own products for your clients as this is a liability. Always promote and use a lash approved FDA approved product.
Lash shampoo should be used prior to a fill or set on clients eyes to clear away any bacteria, makeup or oil residue.
Cleaning prior also greatly improves retention and reduces allergic reactions. Once fully dried than cured a lash bath after application should be done to remove any residues from lash pads, glue fumes etc to reduce the risk of allergic reactions.
For years many people thought when getting an allergic reaction after a set or fill was the blame of the glue. Often, the reactions are not from the glue but can be from the black carbon in glue, gel pads, tape, cleanser or other products used near eyes while prepping.
There are a wide range of lash products from mascara, eyeliner to shampoo, sealants, accelerators, primer and serums. They are all specifically designed to be safe near the eyes and protect the extensions. It is only recommended to use these products.
Primer can be used to help remove and reduce oils, proteins and makeup prior to applications. It serves to create and optimal ph level on natural lashes prior to bonding.
Lash primer should never be overused as it will dry out the natural lash.
Accelerators can be used very lightly upon the extensions while only on pallet NEVER DIRECTLY on eyes. Using too much will cause the extensions to fall off in chunks on the lash strip but will also affect retention once applied to the natural lash. The purpose of an accelerator is to help speed up the glue process when humidity is not in our favour.
Super Bonder is so helpful in eyelash application.
